The former boy-wizard is turning into a very busy man.

Coming out of a blockbuster franchise like Potter, you can't go much further out of your comfort zone than taking to the Broadway stage for the 50th anniversary revival of a beloved musical. He did ten months as the young hustling window cleaner who climbs the greasy pole. Everyone agreed he was a trouper, but nobody pretended he could actually really sing.

His first part outside Potter made waves, maybe not as much from the serviceable job he did in it but because it was the first great British ghost story of a movie. He was probably too young for the role of widowed lawyer Kipps, but he held his own.

He basically staggers about a pub doing some drunk acting and looking maudlin while mouthing along to this track from the folkish Sheffield duo. But the song is excellent and it was filmed at Finsbury Park's Faltering Fullback, aka one the best pubs in London.

Playing against-type s oddballs and misfits in kooky things is all very well, but Radcliffe's first foray into romantic comedy could be a more tricky proposition. Due out next year, he plays Wallace, a young man who develops feelings for woman involved with someone else, and finds himself in the dreaded "friend zone". One of the buzziest offerings at the Toronto Film Festival, this sounds like a gawky indie spin on the genre in the vein of (500) Days Of Summer.
